As global leaders in innovation for the betterment of healthcare, nurses go above and beyond every day to care for their patients. Nurses give back to their communities by being the people on whom others rely. One nurse, Rebecca Schnall, Ph.D., MPH, RN-BC, uses her interests in public health and nursing informatics to research ways to improve patient care. Schnall is an assistant professor of nursing at Columbia University School of Nursing in New York, N.Y. Her research focuses on helping people living with and at risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
